As highlighted at the Presidential Forum, the Weather, Water, and Climate Enterprise has an exciting future in store as we focus on meeting the evolving societal needs in the coming decades.  The growing body of science on climate change and extreme weather (including studies like the National Climate Assessment) underpins President Obama's Climate Action Plan to build more resilient communities, and curb the carbon pollution fueling climate change.  With a science-driven mission to protect public health and the environment, EPA is taking first-ever action to cut carbon pollution from our largest source, power plants.  Following her opening remarks, Administrator McCarthy will engage in a moderated discussion with AMS President William B (Bill) Gail, PhD.
